LAUREN FRANK


Hi, I’m a Graphic Designer based in New York City. I graduated from University of California, Los Angeles in 2020, where I studied Art and Art History and I am now working as a Designer on Michael Gericke’s team at Pentagram. Previously, I have worked for Artisan Council, The Jewish Museum, VICE Media, and Bravo within NBCUniversal.

My main interests within design include typography, archives, branding, and publication design, as well as the intersections between art and design.

Big fan of to-do lists, lists in general, Hieronymus Bosch, the relationship between witchcraft and feminism, weird art, and really chubby typefaces.

SOUVENIRS IN SPACE


Souvenirs in Space was created as part of a capstone project completed for a B.A. in Art from UCLA. This saddle-stitch booklet brings together most of the artwork I created in college, accompanied by text on my inspirations, ideas, and themes behind each series, most of which focus heavily on place, identity, and nostalgia, as named on the booklet’s cover.


BOOK DESIGN



SOPHIE STUDIO


A logo and related materials created for a printmaking studio to mimic the artistic process of printing. This project is composed of one official logotype—seen across the studio’s printed matter—with two accompanying logotypes inspired by the artist’s work. A stamp icon was created by layering the official logotype with one unofficial, representing multiple plates and layering used when printing in various colors. The studio’s printed assets live on translucent paper, similar to tracing paper used by the artist to transfer drawings, allowing for a reflected image from the back of the page to show through.

LOGO DESIGN



POPSHIFT SUMMIT


Designed for a virtual event at the peak of COVID-19 in 2020 to provide participants with a tangible and memorable element of the event, during a very digital-heavy time. This 8-page booklet was a concept created for PopShift Summit, an event bringing television writers and showrunners together to create a more inclusive and intersectional future for the entertainment industry. The use of typography reminiscent of Old Hollywood and bold shapes and color all represent a new wave of change within a historically exclusive industry.

PUBLICATION DESIGN



LUMIERE SKINCARE


A skincare brand with the mission of creating clean and ethical products. The brand’s identity is rooted within nature, with a color palette derived from natural elements and abstract geometric forms inspired by chemical bonds, as the most important element of great skincare is great chemistry.
